News There was a time when Mumbai hockey churned out international players on a regular basismany of whom went onto make the country proud But since goal-keeper Adrian D’Souza made his debut in 2004the city has failed to relive the glory days of the pastand experienced a kind of vacuum with regards to providing players for the senior Indian team That is till 21-year-old Yuvraj Walmiki finally filled up that seven-year-old void by being picked for the upcoming Asian Champions Trophy which is scheduled to be held in OrdosChina next month The scrawny yet prolific striker spoke to Sportsline about his selectionhis experience under Indian hockey’s new coach and also about looking forward to his maiden stint with the national team Q So how have your initial few days been with the senior national team *It’s the best thing to happen to me ever Like everyone elsebeing picked for the Indian team has been my childhood dream And I desperately wanted to be picked this timeespecially after having been a part of Indias developmental team last year It’s already been an awesome experience rubbing shoulders with these guys But the important thing for me from hereon is to make the most of this opportunity Like all my coaches have told me from the beginningit’s not about reaching the top levelthe thing that counts is staying there Q While this is your first-ever stint with Team Indiayou guys are also working under a new coach in Michael Nobbs How has your first month under him been *This is a new teamand we are all settling in nicely He has built up a good rapport with every single player He is someone who has come in with a lot of new ideas and it’s refreshing that way The man who has made a great difference though is Australian David Johnthe trainer (or exercise physiologist) He works with each player individually and picks out specific areas where he thinks they should work onwhile suggesting how exactly they can improve that aspect of their game He has also made working on our fitness a fun exercise I think since David has joined usour fitness levels collectively have gone up by some 70 per cent easily Q What specific area of your game is he working on *Wellhe has asked me to work on getting bigger physically David told me thatif I could add some bulk to my frameI will be far more successful and it’ll help me cope with the strain of playing at the highest level consistently Being a strikerit will also provide me some added advantage David has suggested a brand-new fitness regimen for meand helps me a lot in the gym Q Now that you have made it to the Indian squadhow confident are you of making it to the final XI on a regular basis *I am not thinking about that at the moment I have got here by giving my best each time a chance came my way And even if I get only two minutes out there in the middleI will look to make the most of it The coach has been very supportive of meand even my senior teammates have been encouraging me ever since I got here (Bangalore) for the camp Q When did you find out that you had been picked for the Indian teamand were you expecting it to happen this time around *It started with a campwhich included 110 of usand I had been giving my best from the very beginning We then got short-listed to 48 and then to 30and eventually the team was picked from that final lot My funda was simple throughoutstarting with the first 45-day camp then this Give it my best shotwork harder than ever before and try and make an impact everytime I took the field I also gave it my all in the practice sessionsimpressing both the coach Nobbs and David There was one incident I remember during one of the practice gameswhen I was preparing to take a penalty-corner and the coach jovially tried to discourage me from taking it But I insisted that I will suceedand I converted two straight penalty-corners He was really impressed and said that my confidence would take me a long way That encouragement boosted my self-belief greatly Q How did the family react once they received the news about your selection *My mother was over the moon and my younger brother Devendrawho is also a India junior playertoo was really happy He gets excited whenever I do well And this adds to his motivation to achieve a lot more in his career too I try to pass on all the information I get during these camps to Devendraand I hope one day he too makes it to the senior team Apart from those twomy coach Bawa (Merzban Patel) was the happiest of the lotas he has been there for me throughoutand has always wanted me to do well And Bawa too asks me to help his present lot at the MHAwhenever I am in Mumbai Dhanraj (Pillay) sir also called me and congratulated me after I was picked He has always been my role-modeland I have been living my dream of playing with and under him at Air-India over the last five years Q What advice have the senior players been giving you during the camp *Wellmost of them have only been asking me to put on a few more kilos and get stronger I have played in the German League for the last two yearsand I’m quite aware of the European style of hockeywhich is played at a very high level I don’t think there will be a great difference in standards at the international level There are other juniors in the team toobut I am the smallest size-wise and I am looked at as the baby of the team Q You are in a way a replacement for the injured Shivendra Singh Have you interacted with him after being selected *Shivendra and I have played together at Air-India for quite some time now And he’s been around in Bangalore during the camp He too has been very supportive of meand he’s a great guy to have around the team It’s unfortunate that he’s injured Q How difficult is it for a youngster like youwho’s coming up the ranksto deal with the chaos that Indian hockey forever seems to be engulfed in *Well it’s not easy off the field On the fieldyou are only focussing on your game and it really doesn’t matter But to know that a number of regular players are missing outand quite a few are divided in opinion about the factions is disturbing when you think about it off the field I believe the best thing for Indian hockey would be if the team starts winning consistentlyand brings home a lot of medalslike they used to Q You are the first player from Mumbai to make it to the national team after Adrian D’Souza How special is that achivement for you *It is indeed a very big moment for meand also for the city Bawa keeps telling me how there haven’t been too many from Mumbai making it to the big stageand I hope many more follow me now Alden D’SouzaDevendra and I have made it to the junior team over the last few years But like Bawa saidMumbai hockey required someone to rise up after Viren
